Rainer and Das Combo
Rainer Ptacek - Guitar, Vocals

Billy Sedlmeyr - Drums
This was part of KXCI-FM's - http:www.kxci.org - first broadcast.. The tape was found on the third floor archive at the KXCI Studios.
The recording was re-transfered and mastered to be re-broadcast for KXCI's 20th Anniversary celebration, resulting in a much superior version than has previously circulated.
Thanks for Rainer's family for letting this out of the archives and for allowing this to be seeded into the community!

A musician's musician indeed!
It's at moments like this that I feel so deeply grateful to everyone who makes the Archive possible. This guy sounds great. He reminds me of a mix between Cream, Led Zeppelin, Lightnin' Hopkins and Talking Heads with a little Iggy Pop thrown in for good measure.
Where else but on the Archive? Nowhere! Do you think the people who put Pandora together know about Rainer Ptacek? They don't! Damn, we Archive listeners are LUCKY!

Have never heard something of Rainer. This is my first download. Hope to see more shows. Thanks to the family for the possibility of download. Really great music. Thanks Klaus

electric Rainer Ptacek
I was surprised by this show because the music of the late Rainer Ptacek I previously knew of was mostly acoustic. This is great rock'n'roll, fiercely performed. The best of my downloads to date. Highly recommended

hey, never heard of Rainer before. My loss, obviously. This is great stuff, I'm looking forward to hearing more!

More to come!
Yes, solo acoustic sets & more Rainer & Das Combo on the way! I have the master reels of the entire Westwood sessions (6 or more hours worth) transfered and ready to be put together for a new official release in the coming year!
Two tracks from the Westwood sessions are included as a preview on the new Rainer 'Best Of' release compilation that is coming out this year on Glitterhouse records.
Much more will make it out for folks to enjoy!

Jim, It is great that you have been taking the Rainer collection and archiving it. I always wondered if Patty and family were hip to putting his recordings(there are a lot) in the digital domain, as many are precious but quite raw. Do you have a great "westwood solo" for the archive, as its always been my favorite of his?

Great concert by a great artist
...wonderful music, played with passion, and great sound too. Hopefully there will be more Rainer (solo) stuff out of the archive...
